Sponsored by UCSC’s Global and Community Health Program, Garrett’s talk highlighted the urgent need to strengthen public health infrastructure
A new study by researchers at UC Santa Cruz shows how a common type of epigenetic modification can be transmitted via sperm not only from parents to offspring, but to the next generation (“grandoffspring”) as well. This is called “transgenerational epigenetic inheritance,” and it may explain how a person’s health and development could be influenced by the experiences of his or her parents and grandparents.
New understanding of how the transporter protein cystinosin functions may lead to better treatments for a devastating genetic disease.
UCSC scientists reported three crystal structures of periodic rippled beta sheets, a novel protein structure with potential applications in biomedicine and materials science.
Laura Sanchez, associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry at UCSC, has been chosen to receive the 2022 ACS Infectious Diseases Young Investigator Award.
Kimmey’s lab is investigating how susceptibility to infections is influenced by the daily biological cycles known as circadian rhythms.
With the new award, IBSC directors have now brought in nearly $12 million to fund the future of bimolecular research at UCSC.
UC Santa Cruz has joined the University of California Drug Discovery Consortium (UC DDC), a cross-campus initiative aimed at building a drug discovery community that actively promotes research translation through industry partnerships.
New funding will advance research on how effects of environmental stresses can be transmitted from one generation to the next.
A team of scientists has reconstituted the circadian clock of cyanobacteria in a test tube, enabling them to study rhythmic interactions of the clock proteins in real time and understand how these interactions enable the clock to exert control over gene expression.
A $4.9 million grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine supports a pre- and postdoctoral training program in systems biology of stem cells at UCSC
The NIH Centers of Excellence in Genomic Science program has awarded $13.5 million over five years for a new center to advance genomics in biomedical research
